Customer Question

1990 mercedes SL500 instrument panel stopped working. Dealer says internal short and high price to replace. What alternatives? Is this something that can be pulled out and sent off for repair at a cheaper price?

Yes, the least expensive option is to remove the cluster and have it repaired. There are several outfits listed on the net that will fix your cluster for around $350 - click here to see example.Click here to see video on cluster removal (ignore the tech's spoken instructions, just look at his actions)Best Regards.
